Christmas Wish List

Do you have a Christmas wish list?  Did you write a little note to your sweet Santa?

About a month ago, I decided to start the true search for my Christmas wish list item.  I coaxed a sewing friend into visiting a local sewing shop with me, all so I could look at sergers.  Although I only started sewing about 6 months ago, I see tutorials all the time that involve the use of a serger.  I love to sew.  I don't think I've ever found a craft/activity that I enjoyed as much...yes, I know it is dorky!

Anyway, after trying out the various machines and checking into features, prices, etc., I delivered the pamphlet and sale schedule to my parents.  Mom quickly informed me that she already had my Christmas presents purchased, but she would "take it into consideration."

I couldn't get a vibe on whether this was a ploy or the truth.  I peeked under the tree last week while I was visiting their house.  I'll be honest, there is a box that is the perfect size for a sewing machine.  I asked her to show me which gifts were mine (she doesn't use gift tags), so I could figure out if the box was mine.  She didn't bite!  I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes up, but I can dream, right!?!

Even nerdier than being in LOVE with sewing, I bought a book on sergers...what they do, features, information, etc.  Love it!  I'm almost finished.  I want to be "uber-prepared" just in case!
